the Pope's words and John's reply both ignore the real problem. They pretend that there are only 2 economic systems in modern civilization: Socialism and Capitalist free-markets. The reality is that there is a 3rd system: Corporatism. Socialists see it and mistakenly think it is capitalism. Capitalists see the same Corporatism and mistakenly call it socialism. Until we all explicitly articulate each of the 3 economic systems, we cannot communicate effectively. We mis-understand each other.
